Esther's Sweet Rolls

For a while now I've been meaning to scan a bunch of my late mother-in-law's recipes to share with her extended family.  Esther was a terrific cook, and she collected quite a few family recipes in her lifetime.  She passed away in 1996, and we've been missing her cooking ever since.

Many of her recipes are written in her small, neat handwriting.  Esther was an obstetrics nurse before she married, and, amusingly, she kept many of her recipes in the pages of old nursery workbooks.  Another set of her recipes is in an old 1972 appointment book.  That handwritten table of contents reads:
Perogies - June 26
Lazy Daisy Cake - April 21
Pickle Brine - July 12
Maggie's Oatmeal Cookies - May 5

 And so on . . .  

I'm planning to post an entire collection of her recipes soon. But in the meantime, here's one of Esther's recipes that I enjoyed the most.
